20 feet to the right of Abortion Contortion. 30 feet of 12b/c climbing (V5) to a pumpy 45-foot long 5.11 finish. Definitely the best sport route of the grade in the South. Stick clip the first bolt. Currently has fixed draws.

3 out of 5 stars underwhelming

hard moves off the ground lead to a 12a section. numerous no-hands rests the whole way make it pretty easy to recover before the final v2 boulder problem. pretty easy to redpoint once you have clipped the second draw... pretty heinous to clean...
